So I saw Shutter Island...

Personally, I thought it was a really good suspense/mystery film. The films biggest flaw, and it's pretty substantial considering what the film is trying to achieve, is that it had a very predictable and cliche twist. Before I even saw the movie I had already told myself what the most likely outcome could be and was disappointed when I discovered I was right. For a moment I believed maybe that the film was about to take a sudden turn and leave me surprised. Alas, it did not. But the film isn't gonna be remembered for having a crazy plot twist. It's a cool suspense film with great atmosphere and some top-notch acting.

Happy Birthday, 16th Mario!

If the title for this post seems off to you, then your head is in the right place. That's what my cake had read at my shindig last night. The bakery may have messed up but at least my friends and I got a few laughs out of it.

There is something about the age of 16 that just shouts teen-hood. Although, I don't feel very different; I feel like this development in my life opens up many opportunities. Every day seems the same when they're compared back to back but when I look at the span of my life as a whole, I can see that I've changed quite a lot. Always inching closer towards my future and my goals. It's a pretty scary thought. But I still have some time left before that moment comes. So for now I get to soak into my hobbies and blow off my responsibilities. Because thats what being young is about. Right?

Happy birthday to me.

The End Is Nigh!

Whether you're a crazed fan or just irritated by them, surely you have heard the big news. The final season of Lost is premiering tomorrow night on ABC! And what better way to kick off such a monumental moment in TV history than with a 2 hour event.

I wish I could say I've been with lost since the start, but the truth is I only just started watching around a year ago and I caught up with the rest of the fan-base even later. But now that I've gone through all the plot twists, character deaths and in general 'omgs' as the rest of the world; I can say I am completely prepared for what I am sure will be the grandest mind-fuck to grace my delicate little mind.

I can't wait to see where the series heads next. Just like last season went into a mess of time-travel paradoxes and a tangled of web of continuity. But if the pic above is any indication, shit is about to get seriously real on a scale of biblical proportions.
